Cherished LP courtesy of Graham Revell via SPK with the multi-referencing hallucinogenic expanse of 'Zamia Lehmanni - Songs Of Byzantine Flowers'.  This one's a sidestep from the group's industrial 'metal-dance' sound (and cheesier pop offerings), instead favouring a MUCH deeper, more introspective worldly collage approach with a dark undercurrent.  The brooding mood throughout is completely immersive (you really need to be in the mood to fully appreciate this one), but submitting and drifting through the ancient sound-world of distant gamelans, tribal murmurings and otherworldly instrumentation is the equivalent of receiving a hefty ayahuasca dose at the hands of an all-knowing sonic shaman.  Very important release in the ambient / 4th world canon that's best enjoyed alone in the dark.  (Vinyl & Sleeve VG++).
